Anyone who budgets their finances / monthly expenditures can attest to the difficulty of budgeting for the “unstable” items such as gasoline and grocery store purchases.
Consumers now have the ability to essentially predict monthly gasoline expenditures through MyGallons.com, an online fuel savings program, and plan their finances accordingly. Utilizing the “bulk buying” concept familiar to consumers through retailers such as Costco, MyGallons enables consumers across the country the opportunity to pay for any quantity of gasoline at today's price and redeem their gallons at any time, but most effectively when the price at the pump has risen, providing significant savings.
As an example, if a customer pre-purchases 100 gallons of fuel for $2.00 per gallon through MyGallons, and redeems 6 months later when gas prices have risen to $3.00 a gallon, the original purchase price of $2.00 per gallon would be refunded, plus the difference of $1.00 to reflect the price increase. The consumer wins by saving $1.00 per gallon at the pump.
The best part is that consumers are not limited to where they can “redeem” their gallons. MyGallons can have the money electronically deposited into the consumer’s checking account or have the net cash-in amount loaded onto a MyGallons Fuel Savings Debit Card. So, nothing about how you put fuel in your car changes, just now you have predictability of price and stability for your monthly budget!
